Where to Enjoy Sushi in Abu Dhabi

The city’s finest, freshest and most fabulous sushi.

Sushi is undoubtedly a popular cuisine and can be found anywhere in the world, but granted finding good sushi can be a challenge. Here are our picks for Abu Dhabi's best sushi establishments...



The Collection on Saadiyat Island is becoming one of the places to be seen in Abu Dhabi, thanks to its thriving restaurant scene – and Koi is the jewel in its crown. The food is all about fusions here, mixing traditional Japanese dishes with influences from California (there’s also a branch in West Hollywood). The capital’s hipsters frequent its Thursday night supper club.

LUXOS Recommends: Koi has a new menu – try the sautéed scallops with foie gras

Of all of Abu Dhabi’s restaurants, Zuma grabs the headlines the most, and with good reason – members of the emirate’s royal family have been spotted here and it’s won multiple awards since it opened in 2014. The outlet’s informal, izakaya-style of Japanese dining (dishes are meant to be shared) is the brainchild of German chef Rainer Becker and in terms of quality, the capital’s branch is up there with the chain’s other nine restaurants found in destinations including Dubai, Miami and Rome.

LUXOS Recommends: The miso-marinated black cod wrapped in hoba leaf is Zuma’s signature dish.

This minimalist Japanese has kept a loyal fan base since it opened in 2007 and it’s easy to see why – the décor is classy and modern and its simple, white furniture is offset by novel portholes that line the walls (televisions sit behind them showing videos of floating, neon jellyfish). Finally, its location means alfresco dining is a must – it’s situated by the Maqta Creek.

LUXOS Recommends: The chilli and garlic rock shrimp tempura is the stuff of legends.
